Sixteen Candles - The Crests tabbed by Rick in Macon with REAL help from DrSnoots. (Please see his comments 
to describe the "A minor walkdown" which I've tried to incorporate into this revision). Thanks again, Doc.

[Intro]
Am              Am/G#        
Happy birthday, happy birthday, baby
Am/G Am/F#      G 
Oh, I love you so

[Verse 1]
         C   C7                F   Fm
Sixteen candles make a lovely light
           G7                     C                      G7 
But not as bright as your eyes tonight (as your eyes tonight) (Oh)
                C  C7                      F    Fm 
Blow out the candles, make your wish come true
             G    G7                   C              F       C 
For I'll be wishing that you love me, too (that you love me, too)

[Chorus]
        C7      F 
You're only sixteen (sixteen)
                        C 
But you're my teenage queen (you're my queen)
           Am         Am/G#     Am/G  Am/F#     G   F#         G7
You're the prettiest, loveliest girl I've ever seen (I've ever seen) (OH!)
           C  C7                  F   Fm 
Sixteen candles in my heart will glow
              G7                  C         F       C    C7 
For ever and ever for I love you so (for I love you so)

[Chorus]
                F 
You're only sixteen (sixteen)
                        C 
But you're my teenage queen (you're my queen)
                Am         Am/G#     Am/G  Am/F#     G   F#       G7
Oh, you're the prettiest, loveliest girl I've ever seen (I've ever seen) (OH!)
          C   C7                  F  Fm 
Sixteen candles in my heart will glow
              G7                 C           F       C 
For ever and ever for I love you so (for I love you so)

I gave this 5 stars. Can't find much, if anything, wrong. Plays very nicely. KK.

Here's a more accurate version. The intro is the same as the second art of the bridge. It's an Am walk down. If you don't know what this is, it's the same as the beginning of Stairway To Heaven and you should really know how to play this figure. It's used in many, many songs of all kinds.
